Story of Christian Drapeau MSc. and StemEnhance

christian-drapeau2This is the story of how Christian Drapeau MSc. Chief Science Officer & Co-Founder of StemTech Health Sciences helped develop StemEnhance
A little over two decades ago, a new herbal supplement named Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA), an aquatic botanical, made its appearance on the marketplace. Rapidly, AFA became popular for the wide variety of health benefits reported by consumers. Over the years we identified the presence in AFA of various bioactive compounds such as phycocyanin, a strong natural anti-inflammatory compound, a polysaccharide supporting immune function, and phenylethylamine (PEA), a molecule knows as “the molecule of love,” which increases mental clarity and provides a sense of well-being. Nevertheless, in spite of the identification of these various components, many health benefits reported by consumers remained unexplained.
At the turn of the 21st century, data began appearing in the scientific literature describing the potential of embryonic stem cells (ESC). Embryonic stem cells were shown to have the ability to become any kind of cells in the body. Soon after, studies revealed that adult stem cells (ASC) also had the ability of becoming virtually any kind of cells in the body. When this discovery was made, we hypothesized that adult stem cells constituted the natural renewal system of the body, and we published this hypothesis in the journal, Medical Hypotheses (October 2002). Our idea at the time was this: if adult stem cells indeed constituted the natural renewal system of the body, with adult stem cells being able to become any cell type of the body, then supporting this process could lead to a wide variety of health benefits. Given the broad spectrum of benefits reported by AFA consumers, we simply hypothesized that AFA was supporting aspects of stem cell physiology.
With this in mind, we initiated a series of laboratory experiments and soon discovered that consumption of large quantity of AFA (greater than 5 grams) increased the number of circulating stem cells by up to 30%. As we pursued our investigation to identify the compound in AFA responsible for this effect, we actually identified two specific compounds supporting both the release of stem cells from the bone marrow and their migration out of the blood into tissues. We then proceeded to concentrate these compounds out of AFA, achieving 5:1 concentrates for both compounds, and blended these compounds to make StemEnhance. One gram of StemEnhance supports the release of stem cells from the bone marrow and increases the number of stem cells from the bone marrow and increases the number of circulating stem cells by up to 30%. StemEnhance also concentrates phycocyanin and PEA, other important compounds found in AFA.
StemEnhance is a natural product made of 100% organic AFA and manufactured in accordance with GMP regulations. The powder is encapsulated and bottled in a pharmaceutical grade facility, providing the highest quality possible. Each lot of StemEnhance is tested for any potential contaminants, according to a stringent quality control program.
When asked why would one want to take StemEnhance, the answer is simply to support the body’s natural process of maintaining optimal health. Supporting stem cell physiology everyday by increasing the number of circulating stem cells is one of the wisest decisions one can make to regain and maintain optimal health.
